Dear Coral Reef Ecology Symposium Speakers and Attendees,
On behalf of the Organization Committee, we want to thank you for attending Symposium on Friday at the Max Planck Institute. We greatly appreciate everyone who took the time to come out to support the scientific discussions.
The Symposium was an overwhelming success, attracting participants from more than 8 different institutions and provided fruitful intellectual discussion and social interaction. Your presence helped to make this event a great success and your enthusiasm and positive spirit helped make our time together both productive and fun.
A special thank goes to the keynote speakers, Prof. Rohwer, Prof. Nyström, Dr. van Oevelen, and Dr. Parravicini. Thank you for joining us and sharing your inspiring and thought-provoking perspectives on coral reef ecology. Without your contribution, the symposium would not have been the success that it was.
We hope that you found the conference informative and worthwhile. Thanks to all of you, our main scientific objective to generate novel scientific ideas and projects has certainly been achieved.
Sebastian, Astrid, Christian and Marianna
